It’s a classic for a reason. Late last year, AJ Styles wrapped up a year plus reign as WWE Champion, which was one of the longest in about thirty years. The reign saw Styles in a ton of good to excellent matches, including with a variety of top level opponents. Some of them included various rematches, but now that Styles isn’t champion anymore, we might be heading into a different kind of story.
According to Cagesideseats.com, the post WrestleMania 35 plans for Styles could see a feud with current United States Champion Samoa Joe, though there is no word on if the feud would be for the title or not. Styles and Samoa Joe feuded extensively during 2018 with Samoa Joe losing the majority of the matches and never winning the title. Styles is currently scheduled to face Randy Orton at WrestleMania.
Samoa Joe brings out the fire in Styles. Check out one of their violent encounters:
Opinion: It’s something that has worked before and it’s the kind of feud that will work again. At least there’s something different this time though with Styles chasing a title for a change and that could be enough to make things a lot more interesting. If nothing else, Samoa Joe will be more than able to make it work from a talking standpoint, as he might be the best in the company in that area at the moment.
